Cherubim are immensely powerful beings intimately connected to God who function as His ministering servants in accomplishing His direct will. Whether recognized as such in artistic depictions, people of faith can rely on the veracity of Bible as the foundation for our understanding.
For people of faith, it’s imperative to remember—that with every salutation and greeting of “Merry Christmas,” you are proclaiming that the Messiah and Savior of the world came, as prophesied through angelic encounters!
The next time you see an angel figure—topping a Christmas tree, swinging silently above a Nativity scene or dizzily careening around in an angel chime—take time to ponder that God’s messengers are not merely an ornament to the Christmas Story; they are integral to it!
Loudly repeating the word “holy” three times in deafening succession, seraphim emphatically express the absolute holiness of God. Whether a vision or a glimpse into unseen reality, one thing is certain—Isaiah was never the same.
How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!
. . . behold, three men were standing by him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the ground, and said, “my Lord” . . .
God’s holiness does not make Him aloof or disconnected from His creation. God is aware of all that takes place in the universe. . .
Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.
